Deal: £1,380 HP DL580 G5 server with 16 Xeon Cores, 64GB of RAM

Should you be after a powerful server from a branded provider, have a look at the HP DL580 G5 rack-mounted server from Bargain*hardware, an eBay reseller that specializes in server gear. That product is currently on sale for £1,380 with 1,380 Nectar points and free delivery. It doesn't, unfortunately, come with any non-DOA warranty and you cannot buy that as an option as well.

The specification sheet of that server reads as follows: four quad-core Intel Xeon processors (X7350) clocked at 2.93GHz with 2MB cache per core and a 1.066GHz FSB. There's also 64GB PC2-5300F DDR2 ECC RAM spread over 16 slots, a HP Smart Array P400/512MB RAID Controller with BBWC Module, eight 2.5in SFF SAS/SATA Hard Drive Bays, an integrated ATI ES1000 video controller with 32MB embedded video SDRAM, a DVD-ROM drive, two embedded NC373i Multifunction Gigabit Network Adapters with TCP/IP Offload Engine, four HP 1200W Hot plug AC power supply units, ILO2 remote management and eight PCI-Express expansion slots. Interface ports include four USB ports, two VGA ports, Serial, ILO, two RJ45 Ethernet connectors plus two PS2 ones.
